Own technological project “Realmente Conectados”
We are a school of reference and for this reason we incorporate technology into our pupils’ academic education, in a gradual, progressive and adapted way, because we understand that it provides the necessary nuances in their intellectual relationship with the world and because it helps our pupils to think critically and creatively, to communicate fluently and expressively, to face life with maturity and to participate responsibly in society.
OBJECTIVE: DIGITAL COMPETENCE
These competences go beyond knowing how to use digital tools and applications, they equip people with the tools to collaborate, communicate, share, inform, create content and disseminate information in a digital environment in an effective, safe, critical and civic way.
MICROSOFT-ENDORSED DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT
To do this, we have created a Microsoft digital learning ecosystem, through all Office 365 applications that enriches the functioning of classes and promotes learning. It allows us to collaborate from anywhere, communicate and share content in a secure and accessible way with our students, organising tasks and having access to more content.
TABLET (IPAD) ASSISTED LEARNING
Each student has an individual device (iPad) which helps to personalise learning and foster autonomy and mobility. The digital ecosystem improves workflows and the richness of the types of assessment (individual, joint, etc.), creativity, the creation of electronic portfolios, as well as better communication between parents, students and teachers and joint monitoring of their children’s progress through a daily follow-up that identifies the different problems to be solved.
Our classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art digital projectors, smartboards, as well as webcams for permanent online connections. We also have wifi throughout the school.
QUALITY DIGITAL EDUCATION PLATFORMS
We train our students using the best digital platforms to improve their spelling and reading comprehension (WALINWA), scientific knowledge (SCIENCE BITS) and reading comprehension and reading promotion (FICTION EXPRESS or MILTON).
PROGRAMMING, ROBOTICS, BIG DATA AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Aware of the importance of these areas in today’s society and in their professional future, we seek to train them in the latest trends. They participate in external competitions such as STEAM Up or TECHNOVATION GIRLS from the Polytechnic University of Valencia or BIG Data from the Educaixa Foundation. They also use ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE materials from the University of Helsinki or Microsoft. And they build and design robotics projects with ARDUINO or LEGO throughout this stage.
The teaching of digital citizenship is about educating to be citizens, free and integrated in the real and digital world. For this reason, we work with our students on different aspects of digital citizenship in an intracurricular way.
